'One of the most interesting and important books produced in Ireland in the twentieth century. In prose as layered and rich as the area he explores, Robinson deals with space in the way Proust deals with time.' - Sean Dunne, Cork Anthology; 'Robinson's language is fastidiously and finely wrought. It draws the reader on, hypnotically, not merely into Aran's fantastic interface of rock and sea, but into a revelation of total environment.' - Michael Viney, Irish Times; 'Stones of Aran warms cold geology into fervent life. Robinson's chosen form is wholly irresistible.' - Johnathan Keates, Independent; 'Robinson's Aran will, inevitably, become part of the general myth. It is a wonderful achievement.' - Seamus Deane, London Review of BooksBook Description:
Stones of Aran: Pilgrimage by Tom Robinson is an unforgettable evocation of a haunting place, brimming with human and natural history.
